Join us with celebrating all that our local Richmond Parks and Recreation accomplishes as we ring in Parks and Recreation Month with IPRA! In a long standing tradition by the NRPA, the month of July has been used to highlight the powerful impacts parks have on the communities locally, statewide, and nationally. Richmond Parks and Recreation work hard on our efforts for inclusion, resilience, physical health, mental well-being, access to play, and our community.

Just some of the ways we hit the mark is with our Richmond Farmer's Market, J.U.K.O. programs, Family Series, and our Fitness Series to name a few. We strive everyday to make our community a stronger and more connected unit. Use this time to reflect this month on how Richmond Parks and Recreation, as well as other parks have impacted you personally or as a community.
